I am very sorry....

transfermer... If I wasn't accepted as spring transfer, and planning to re-apply as fall transfer, is latest official transcript all required? if so, is it better if I let the school mail the transcript? or can I pick it up from school and mail it myself? because I have a little essay to mail as well. also, should I mention anything else in the mail to clarify that I am re-applying who don't require to pay additional $60 application fee? do you have all the recommendation letter from spring application?

About class description... does it have to be official form? or can I just type them in and print it out, and mail it to you?
